Pier Solar, the plucky Sega Genesis fan project, may be coming to HD platforms in December 2013. WaterMelon Co. has created a Kickstarter project that will allow it to create an HD version of the game for Xbox 360 and PC/Mac/Linux.
The game is a love letter to the era of 16-bit RPGs, and stars a young man on a quest to save his father from a mysterious illness. As these things do, the quest soon becomes far more epic, and the creators state that the game lasts for over fifty hours. The various Kickstarter backer tiers include options such as a digital copy of the game for $15, a physical version for $49, and a collector's edition for $125.
